I was not even going to get involved in this useless thread,
however, the above is factually incorrect.

I also find it annoying that Hetzner is considering this "solution",
however, there are a lot of us with free blocks, where we only pay the
flexi pack fee.

So, what Hetzner should be doing is, give us an incentive, to hand some
blocks back, by allowing us to keep half the addresses (for VMs etc..)
every time we switch to a new server. The older servers are getting
quite rubbish now.
So, both parties would benefit. The main reason for having a lot of IPs
was IE6, as it did not support the SSL extensions allowing multiple ssl
sites on a single IP, which all modern browsers now support.

Anyway. I hope this thread can stop now. Email your suggestions,
complaints to Hetzner.

I will.
